Well,you have to give your pets time to get use to one anouther they probley have not seen any thing like it before.You need to start kepping them inthe same room so that they will get time to know one anouther then they will be use to one anouther and no more running around the house like mad. So follow the tip i am sure it will work.

** Never put a kitten in the same room unattended with a dog. The dogs instinct is to chase anything that runs. This will endanger the kitten. You need to hold the kitten while the dog is in the same room and make sure the dog will not harm the cat. You do not push the kitten on the dog but let them sit quietly with you in the room. A little closer and longer each day and they will get used to each other with your support.

When your introducing a kitten to the dog (or the other way around) Don't put them inside the same room. you should block the room with something that they could see through and put them in separate sides so they could look at each other and you should just give them time to get use to seeing each other and eventually they might become friends

How do you get a cat to like dogs?

The best way to get a cat to like dogs is to raise it from a small kitten (6-10 weeks) with a dog. Being so small and still learning about the big world around it, the kitten will not discriminate against the dog and see it as a companion (friend). As the kitten grows to an adult, it will not see dogs as a threat, but instead, as a new friend

Can a kitten be brought into a home with a dog?

Yes, kittens and dogs get along very well. I have two dogs and a cat. Please go to my bio page by clicking onto my name and you will see them. Put the dog on a leash in the house until the kitten investigates the house and the new owners. This should take approximately 1/2 hour. Then gently bring the dog over to the kitten. The kitten will hiss and arch it's back, but this is a normal instinct for them. Don't let the dog chase the kitten and keep a watchful eye on them. Pet the dog and then pet the kitten (putting the smell of the dog on the cat and then pet the dog putting the smell of the kitten on it.) No matter how large your dog is dogs generally learn very quickly that kittens are becoming a part of the family. Once you are fairly certain that the dog is gentle let the dog and kitten settle their differences. The kitten may get a crack or two with it's little nails into the nose of the dog and most of the time the dog will back off no matter how big they are. Before you know it they will be buddies.

Can a cat drink milk from a dog?

Yes. Based on my experience, kittens can and will nurse from a dog. Introduce the kitten slowly to the dog. Allow the dog to sniff and lick the kitten. Then, place the kitten on the breast of the nursing mother dog. I'm not sure if the dog's milk has all the nutrients required for the kitten to survive on this alone so I would use this method as a supplement. Purchase some kitten replacement milk and a pet feeding bottle from the pet store or vet's office and bottle feed as often as you can.
